It is very interesting to explore new cities and their sky views
Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 12, 2013 12:41 PM

After taking this quiz I realized I could not really identify most of these cities. I could tell some of them were European from the look of the buildings. I also thought a few more were cities in the United States but there was only Dallas. In my opinion these cities are even more spectacular than some of our major cities.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:28 PM

Through the use of digital technologies students develop ICT capabilities through being exposed and adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve (ACARA, 2013). Students learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively, and in their lives beyond school.

 

The following list consist of applications addresses the learning needs of special needs students. These applications delevop social skills, speech to text, augmentative/alternative communication and  develop spatial reasoning skills. I have used some of these applications such as "My first ACC and Pictello" in previous practicums and they have engaged the student.
